The Story

In 2002, Yamaha introduced a new harddisk recorder, the AW16G ("the G"). For some people, the learning curve was quite steep and a guy named Dinsdale decided to put up a support forum. Unfortunately, Dinsdale had to abandon ship but at least he left the forum intact for us to use. Many people used it and some of them decided to meet.

One of the members, DCinFrance, organised a meeting at his location, Dijon. That is why we put up the site, which we later used for a safe haven when the forum started malfunctioning. Nowadays, most of the active users of the old forum reside here. There's quite some knowledge on the G around, as well as on recording in general, instruments, and all other things that have to do with music. The DijonStock forum offers AW16G (and AW1600) support, but also all kinds of other support: gear, music theory and all you can think of. We also have a lot of "drivel": small talk.


The theme of DijonStock was: "Three days of peace, music and drivel". Participants: DCinFrance (David) hosted the whole DijonStock project. Visitors from the forum were: Drum, MicEater, Pete Young, Lysdexia and Robbie. David's band called Short was there too: Jean-Christophe, Jean-Marc, Philippe and Pascal. Some of them also took their wife and children with them. On Friday and Saterday another couple of Davids friends also visited, one of the daughters, Lara (15 at the time), ended up on stage singing for the crowd!

Thursday: we got together at the DCinFrance "Estate", a very nice house with a built-in studio. In the evening we had a "get to know you" party, right after MicEaters Swiss Fondue.

Friday: most of us went to the market to look around and shop for food. Pascal and Lysdexia, both being professional cooks, showed us their master skills and prepared a great and delicious meal. In the evening, we first had a wine tasting masterclass by DCinFrance, after that, all members got interviewed, live on Radio G.

Saturday: moving the studio content to the Salle de Fetes. A couple of hours hard work, but mostly for the band members that know their equipment. Dinner: BBQ at the estate. Gouda cutting and sniffing masterclass by Robbie. Back to Salle de Fetes: Showtime! We played until very late... err... very early... well... not so early in the morning.

Sunday: travelling back home for the most of us.

Since the fall of the original support forum (June 2004), is used as a replacement. In the meantime, lots of things have happened. If you read the Announcements in this section, you will know a lot about things are arranged at this forum.

In 2006, DCinFrance again hosted a meeting. Having moved to Nice, we call it NiceStock.

After July 2004, many newbies found this forum, which is a good thing. Welcome everyone.

Enjoy your stay!
